Become an Arya Member, Bring Your Products to Customers at Our Shopping Festivals!

Our festivals are held twice a year – in winter and summer – to give our women entrepreneurs the opportunity to promote and sell their products to the ARYA Network. Dating back to 2015, when we held this event in our artsy little office in Beyoğlu, and later when we held it in larger venues like Feriye Palace, Fark Labs, and Casa Hermanas – wherever the place, this bi-annual festival is when we get to introduce great brands to our network.

Buy from Arya Entrepreneurs,
Support Women Entrepreneurs.

As Arya, we have been carrying out works for years on gender equality, strengthening the place of women in business life and making their voices heard better. Adopting the UNPD sustainable development goals of “gender inequality”, “decent work and economic growth” and “elimination of inequalities”, we act with the vision of transforming the world under female leadership. In line with these goals, we support women entrepreneurs to reach the right networking and capital resources. You can increase the Arya effect and contribute to the transformation of the world by purchasing the products and services you will receive from our entrepreneurs who are women founders.

Arya entrepreneurs with an established legal company who have a product ready for sale and a POS machine to collect payments are eligible to apply for a stand.

Arya Entrepreneur Members are eligible to participate in the festival without paying any stand fee. Entrepreneurs who are not yet members are welcome to participate in the festival once they finalize their Arya membership.

Applicants are selected to participate based on the number of stands available at the venue; keeping an appropriate balance of products; and staying in harmony with the festival concept or season.

 

For example, if three stands have been allotted at the new year’s festival, we likely will not accept summer handbags. However, we would reserve space for these summer-themed products in our summer festival in Bodrum.

We begin accepting applications one month before each festival and announce this via our mailing list and social media platforms.
